High praise from you. It is the first song I think of for a Jerry ballad or a blues song. Bluetiful.
Thanks for your notes. I will copy and save.
The early ones are stark in their beauty, no frills, unadorned, and Jerry had a nice quiet voice then.

The way these responses line up here sometimes you can't tell what post the response is to VM.I'm taking a shot you were talking to me and as not to be rude and leave you unanswered I will say thanks for the thanks.I too very much enjoy the early versions and would have used the 11-19 version as an example had you not done so.The starkness of them is the appeal.

That was a good list to get this going. I save your lists for future use. There was one a while back about songs from 70 and 71 that was gone too soon. Maybe you will post it again.
I agree Dodd was off on his comments which is a little surprising. I have found his Annotated Lyrics a good reference tool and links or for when I hear "all the cards are dealt" instead of "all the cards are down." Then, it sounds clear. I am always amazed when I learn the real words how easy they are to understand as opposed to when I made it up.

I had some glitches with the sources for some of the songs on that '70-'71 post so I just deleted it.I'll re-post it somewhere down the line.As for Mr. Dodd I think his annotated lyrics site is the go to place for the correct words,but I find his analysis of the lyrics on dead.net to be pure horse shit.Let me say I have a very limited sampling of his opinions.
